Food: Dinner Tonight – Personalized Pizza

I have a weakness for pizza and could very well eat a personal size one a day – with a variety of toppings. My current favorite pizza places in San Francisco being here for a get-together traditional pizza experience, here for a quick bite to eat at the mall, and here, and here when we venture out of San Francisco and do not have the time to search for a local Yelp reviewed five-star restaurant.

The trouble with Pizza is that since I have cut down or eliminated as much as possible, carbs from my diet, I try to minimize the consumption to once a month or twice and maybe three times, but only on a cold and rainy day. 🙂

So when I found this recipe here, I felt the need to  switch-it-up to fit all of my dietary restrictions and I am forcing the family to follow along.

INGREDIENTS

    • 1/2 pound pizza dough, homemade or store-bought {I switched to cauliflower ready-made dough}
    • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil 
    • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
    • kosher salt and pepper
    • 3 tablespoons crème fraîche
    • 1 cup shredded fontina cheese
    • 2 cups shredded Tuscan kale  {I switched to fresh spinach or cabbage – I am not a fan of Kale}
    • ½ small butternut squash, cut into ribbons using a vegetable peeler  {or you can add zucchini instead}
    • 8 fresh sage leaves, chopped
    • 1 tablespoon honey, plus more for serving
    • 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes
    • 8 ounces fresh buffalo mozzarella or mozzarella, torn
    • 1/2 cup pomegranate arils
    • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds {more}
